VinNOW Integrated Web Shopping Cart

When customers place orders on your website, the orders and customer details are transferred to the VinNOW program for processing. When customers sign up for wine clubs, the sign-ups are transferred to VinNOW and tasting room sign ups are uploaded to the shopping cart database.Wine Club members can update their billing, shipping and payment information online which will then flow seamlessly into VinNOW updating customer records. Products created in VinNOW are uploaded to the web shopping cart database. The product will be marked 'inactive' until a few non-VinNOW required fields are provided. When product are changed in VinNOW, many of the common fields on the web shopping cart will automatically be updated in the shopping cart database, such as the product price.
